Thought I would share a rub recipe that I found and have been using regularly. I've gotten rave reviews about it on Ribs, CS Ribs, and Chicken. I've slightly adjusted the original recipe which can be found at http://pigsworstnightmare.com/rubs.aspx to suite my own taste.
I upped the apple by 1 TBSP and reduced the garlic. My advice is to make a half batch of the original and then adjust to taste. Also made their sauce and really enjoy, it complements the rub well.
I'm making a large batch today and going to send some to the in-laws. The biggest thing is to get the apples potato chip dry which requires a little bit of prep time. Also find that I don't have caking issues if I keep it in the frig. guess the apples and sugars tend to take on moisture if they get a chance.
Anyway, hope you enjoy and let me know if you have questions.
7 TBSP Dried Ground Apple
3 TBSP Dark Brown Sugar
3 TBSP Demerara Sugar
3 TBSP Kosher Salt
1 Tsp Sweet Paprika
Â½ Tsp Garlic Powder
Â½ Tsp Ground White Pepper
Edit: 11-13-10 Looks like their domain is no longer active. Also if you don't read the entire thread, we did find powdered apple from NaturesFlavors.com you have to scroll down quite aways to find the powders.
